    Refinding the love

    So this year I did three things. I stopped breaking my nuts over rock gardens, baby heads, teeter totters, whatever, and bypassed the super technical stuff and I went for the flow. Sought out tight twisty rocketing single track. Second I got some nice carbon wheels, got big tires and just dropped the pressure big time. Lastly converted 3x10 to a 1x11.
    It's so, so, so much better.
    Will always love the feeling of flying on a fast bike through flowing singletrack. Nothing against folks who dig rock gardens and drop off's. It just isn't ever going to be me.

    Glad you reignited the love. I couldn’t agree more.


    a Lycra-wearing, XC-riding, leg-shaving, won’t ride anything with more than 100mm travel nut job.
